with us tonight. with just about 50 hours until election day, the candidates are making their closing arguments like never before and in the battleground state of ohio, president obama is definitely on the move. the latest nbc maris poll has the president up. he is pushing hard about the dishonest ad about jeep moving jobs to china. >> you've got folks who work at the jeep plant who have been calling their employers worried asking if their jobs were being shipped to china. you've heard about this. everybody heard about this? and the reason they're worried is because governor romney is running ads saying that jeep is shipping jobs to china. there's only one problem. it's not true. >> it's just not ohio where president obama is surging. in 22 new polls of battleground states, the president leads in 19 of them. the obama campaign is taking nothing for granted, however. and joe biden put the campaign into perspective. >> i want to remind you, this is the end of daylight savings time tonight. it's mitt romney's favorite time of the year because he gets to turn the clock back. he wants to t
-organized fringe of radical birthers, the election of a black president doesn't tell us much about the structural barriers that continue to face the vast majority of black citizens. it doesn't tell us much about the narrow arena of electoral arena for black candidates. maybe you've noticed there's not one african-american in the united states senate. we're called 2008 with an open seat race. unpopular wars, a crushing -- a nation that was crashing in terms of the economy and exhausted the with the incumbent george w. bush opened the door wide for a democrat to win. throughout american history, race has been a disqualifier even if favorable, political circumstances. not in 2008. overall, american voters did not -- this is meaningful if imperfect progress. in three days, we'll learn if america's first black president will be re-elected. the conditions are very different this time around. he is the incumbent, the economy is still limping and it may be harder generally to win reelection of our previous 42 presidents. only 16 were elected to two terms. if america doesn't choose president obama again,

's closing argument to voters. >> the closing weeks of this campaign, governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. and he is offering them change. he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. and what the governor is offering sure ain't change. >> it sure ain't change. but governor romney is good at changing on every position and doing anything to win. on the trail, he's trying to sound warm and cuddly. he's now taking a soft attack. the new york times quoting him on the trail as saying, democrats love america, too. gee, governor. thanks for that. but that soft attack apparently ends there. because behind the scenes, republicans are starting to go into their get ugly, to do anything to win this election. in miami, he's running a spanish language ad tieing president obama to fidel castro and hugo chavez. yes, venezuela dictator hugo chavez. that's apparently a-okay with mitt romney.

for being with us. "the ed show" with ed hultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. with less than four hours to election day, this thing is going down to the wire. this is "the ed show." exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth. the belief that our destiny is shared. that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and the to future generations, so that the freedom for which so many americans have fought for and died for comes with responsibilities as well as rights, and among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. that's what makes america great. >> a little bit different than 2008, isn't it? you know, in a way, this victory was brought to you by the radical governors, who spent the last three years stumping all over the middle class in their states. there's something all of these governors have in common, i'm talking about john casey in ohio, chris christie in new jersey, rick snyder in michigan, tom corbett in pennsylvania, rick scott in florida. let's
sniet. >>> as we fall back from daylight savings shs the candidates are using every minute of that extra hour. president obama bounces from one battle ground state to another using ohio as his airline hub. he's using all the hot spots trying to rally his base and any undecided voters he thinks are left. governor romney is also racing against the clock, tweaking his argument. and in case you forgot, we've got more than two guys running on tuesday, tonight we'll break down all of the battles, particularly for congress and who will decide control of it and what the next president can get done. good evening from democracy plaza. it's saturday, november 3, 2012. this is a prime time edition of "the daily rundown." we're taking a look at how we got here. presidential elections that aren't close are actually odd. no republican has gotten more than 300 electoral votes since 1988. only four democrats in history have gotten more than 53% of the vote. bottom line, this is 1976 meets 2000 meets 2004. in other words, it's a very close race. so how did we get here? the president began this campaign we
of probability. but now the question shifted from who will win to what are the voters trying to tell us? and not even nate did definitively answer that. here's what we do know. voters turned out for president barack obama in droves. despite having a somewhat smaller electoral map than in 2008, this is one of the biggest democratic wins since fdr. with florida now colored blue, the president had secured a wide electoral surplus and a sizable popular vote margin. now, the popular vote win was made possible by people who lined up in huge numbers to vote in states like louisiana or new york or south carolina, which weren't in play in terms of their electoral votes. they weren't going to be needed. but who were nonetheless determined to cast their ballots for the president. as a result, this president's win was bigger than jfk's in 1960, bigger than richard nixon in 1968, bigger than jimmy carter's in 1976 and bigger than george w. bush's in 2000. no denying it. it was a big win. and as i said before, size does matter. at least when it comes to laying claim to a mandate. so the president may
had my sister and i and raised us in new york. she could not vote in her home town until she was 40 years old in 1965 but her generation made it possible for me to vote, for me to run for president, for me to sit in rockefeller center on election eve. i owe my children more than i have. she gave me more than she had. tomorrow i like obama but i'll be voting for my mama. thank you for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> an easy choice. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in philadelphia. let me start tonight with this. tomorrow america, this country of ours will be divided. half the country will vote for president obama and keep faith with the current direction. half will vote with varying degrees of anger to depart from it. to who knows in one of the various directions governor romney has offered. with him you need a weather map to know what road he's going to take on any given day. the question looms now of how this country will get together the day after tomorrow. i always think that's important, but it's more important now because o
with the one that brung him. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" starts now. >> thanks, chris, i'm al sharpton. this is a special edition of sunday it sunday "politicsnation." we are coming to you live tonight from democracy plaza from new york's rockefeller center. it'll be our headquarters through election day. we have two days to go. here's where the race stands. new nbc news wall street journal poll just out today shows president obama with 48% of the national vote. mitt romney has 47%. a dead heat. the new york times, 538 blog says if the election were held today, the president would win reelection with 307 electoral votes. mitt romney would get 231. 270 is the magic number needed to winter white house. the times blog gives the president an 85% chance of winning the election. romney has a 15% chance. that's the highest percentage the president has had since october 3rd, the day of the first debate. and as of tonight, more than 29 million people are have already vote pepd but the lines as long as six hours in florida have led to a major development in tha
as the president's people told us did end up being demographics and turnout. latinos continue their embrace of the democrats and the rejection of the republicans. the white share of the vote was 72% which was exactly what plouffe, axelrod and mecino told us it would be. we want to break news here. >> we have mugs. we are excited. i'm sure our viewers are excited. >> on a day of big news, this was breaking. >> this is what we care about. no. we get in to the politics of this, what happened, the demographic break down and quickly say what this means for the country. health care stays. it means paul ryan's budget is essentially irrelevant since they weren't able to get the majority in the senate and maybe more importantly i think latino voters made their voice heard loud and clear to both parties in this election and comprehensive immigration reform of some sort will have to be a priority in the next administration. >> you're absolutely right. the gop has to move to the left on the immigration. latino issues. black and brown voters emerged this year as power brokers saying white people cannot
to have you with us tonight. folks, thanks for watching. the days are racing by and time is running out. mitt romney needs something short of a miracle in the worst way. romney went to clooeflds today to project strength. in the choice of the american people can lead to one of two very different destinations. if the president were to be reelected -- [ booing ] >> it's possible, but not likely. >> romney's running mate paul ryan is trying to complete a hale mary pass in wisconsin. he was tailgating with packer fans today at lambeau field. then it was off to ohio as well. >> two more days. just two more days. two more days. this is one of those elections we will think back at and look at for years. >> the national polling average has president obama on top by just half a point. romney isn't as close in the states where the election is going to be decided. in paul rooip's home state of wisconsin, the president leads by an average of more than four points. president obama has kept a stead zi two-point lead in nearby iowa. in ohio the president's lead has not diminished in recent weeks. the
will be the united states of america. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. today we're on the other side of history. last night we saw a statement election in america and it opens up a huge opportunity for democrats to move this country forward. this was the scene in chicago, the moment president obama supporters were told he secured enough electoral votes to be re-elected as the 44th president of the united states. president obama is not naive about his place in history. the victory was a repudiation of the right wing agenda. also an affirmation of the president's vision for the country. >> what makes america exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth. the belief that our destiny is shared. that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and the to future generations, so that the freedom for which so many americans have fought for and died for comes with responsibilities as well as rights, and among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. that's what makes america great. >> a little bit di
saying he wasn't legitimate and saying it was stolen and fearful where that person will lead us? >> aing thi think that depends determination of citizens across the country that are outside the normal teams that operate in the two campaigns. we have a professional middle class in america. they're stoking the fires of fear. as i go across the country, people want the country to work together again. if a republican wins, they want that republican to work with the democrats and vice versa. i was out in the great plains. that's a part of the country doing very well. they didn't do any of the dumb things with subprime lending, agriculture is booming and unemployment in north and south dakota are under 5%. if they can make it work, why can't they make it work in washington? we need more of that to move the country forward. we're still playing by 20th century rules in this country in almost everything we do and we're in the 21st century. what's so striking is we're all in awe of silicon valley and all it produces for us. this transformative technology. what's the mantra of silicon valley? be di
also reporter ruth conniff with us tonight here on "the ed show" that is "the ed show" from new york city. "the ed schultz." "the daily rundown" starts now with chuck todd. have a great weekend. see you here tomorrow morning. >>> as we fall back from daylight savings, the candidates are using every minute of that extra hour. president obama bounces from one battleground state to another using ohio as his airline hub. he's using all the hot spots trying to rally his base and any undecided voters he thinks are left. governor romney is also racing against the clock, tweaking his closing argument just slightly to get into the end zone. and in case you forgot, we've got more than two guys running on tuesday, tonight we'll break down all of the battles, particularly for congress and who will decide control of it and what the next president can get done. good evening from democracy plaza. here in new york city, it is saturday, november 3, 2012. this is a prime time edition of "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. i call it my election preview special, so we'll get to my first reads with
to "morning joe." with us on set, we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle and national affairs editor for "new york" magazine and analyst john heilemann. and we have a weather story to start with. >> this is the new normal. >> it's unbelievable. >> across the northeast and connecticut last year, we had a hurricane first, and then we had a snowstorm at the end of october. the same thing's happened again. i mean, the fact that people on long island, people on staten island, people across new jersey have no power right now and are having to deal with another nor'easter, this time they're shivering in their homes instead of what we always did in florida which was sweat in our homes. much better. >> in some places there's no place for people to go. it's a devastating situation. we begin this morning with hundreds of thousands of americans remaining without power during an unseasonably cold spell in the northeast. adding to the damage left by hurricane sandy. a nor'easter blew through the east coast yesterday, dumping snow and rain on a region that's barely begun to dig out from sandy. we've got new
, not abridged. >> all right. state senator nina turner, thanks for joining us tonight. appreciate your time. crazy stuff happening in ohio. it just starts right up, doesn't it? a week after the election. i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >> i'm so happy you had her on. we'll be talking about that later on in this show too. and that t-shirt is one for the smithsonian. >> it certainly is. there's no doubt. >> thank you, ed. >> thank you. >>> thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. in his first press conference after being re-elected to a second term as president, then president ronald reagan was asked if he had anything to say to the people in the country who did not vote for him and who did not feel that they were part of the reagan revolution. he was also asked about nancy reagan falling down and bumping her head right before the election. he said that she had a tender lump on the side of her head, but that she would be fine. in president clinton's first press conference, after he was re-elected to a second term, the president started to answer a question ab
us the truth even when it's hard. i wanted a president driven not by politics or which way the wind is blowing but by the struggles, hopes and dreams of all americans. the more i thought about it, the more i knew in my heart that i was describing barack. i knew he could be that president, and for four years that's exactly what he's done. he has stayed true to himself and with your help, he's worked day after day to make this country better to move it forward. he's rescued our economy from the brink of collapse, saved the auto industry. [ applause ] he's passed historic health reform, ended the war in iraq. he's fought so women get equal pay and students can afford college. [ applause ] he's fought for our seniors so they can retire with dignity and our veterans so that they can get the benefits they earned and the respect they deserve. for four years barack has been fighting to give every single one of us a fair shot at that great american dream no matter what we look like or where we come from or who we love. [ applause ] for four years we have all seen what i've seen for the past
and american, where justice is reachable and close to reality because of what we, all of us, do tomorrow. and, boy, that's "hardball" for now. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. i'm al sharpton. we're live tonight from democracy plaza in new york's rockefeller center. it's one day until millions stream to the polls to decide the future of the presidency and the future of this country. after months of campaigning, this election is down to a few fleeting hours. there's so much focus right now in the details for this close race. where are the independents? what's the latest from ohio? who can turn out their voters? but let's step back for a moment. this election is about much more than the details. what's at stake is a big -- very, very big thing. it's about protecting decades of progressive ideas. it's about protecting the security that fdr social security program has given generations of americans. it's about preserving lbj's medicare program with 50 million seniors depend on. it's about depending the president -- on the pres
for president of united states. >> all right guys, stick with us. coming up on "way too early," elizabeth warren gets a win over scott brown in that closely watched massachusetts race. we'll look at how all the big races play out across the country, what it means for the coming fiscal fight on capitol hill. also ahead, bill karins going to join us from down democracy plaza with an update on this radar map a nor'easter headed straight for some of the same areas wiped out by last week's superstorm. we'll be right back at 30 rock in just a minute. >>> last night president obama became just the 17th president in u.s. hist troy win a second full term in office when he defeated mitt romney to reclaim the presidency. should he serve out the full second term, he'll be the 13th president in our country's hist troy do so. you want to sound smart today? tell your friends that president obama's re-election marks the first time, get this, since 1816 that the united states has had three consecutive presidents elected to a second term before president obama, of course, george w. bush and bill clinton. the last
at home for staying with us for the next hour. at almost exactly this point in the presidential race of 1956, on october 29th, 1956, with the election that year coming up just a week later, israel invaded egypt. and they did it with the secret support of two major u.s. allies. france and england. it was a fight over control of the suez canal. the american president at that time, in 1956, was, of course, dwight eisenhower. republican. he was running for re-election against the democratic candidate that year, adlai stevenson. talk about an october surprise. that year it was eight days before election day. both candidates are forced to deal with an unexpected and genuine giant foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any pha

've got chuck todd joining us and howard fineman. i have to give you some anecdotal information which has given me good information. i have a brother charlie who always votes for the winner. he called me an hour ago and said it's obama. because that's who he's going to vote for. don't laugh, chuck. when you get an absolute provable leading indicator you will never let it go either. so i've got one. i've looked at all the numbers today. all the numbers seem to point to a mild victory for obama. none seem to point for a victory for romney. what do you know so far? >> i can tell you the body language of the campaign, talking to the two campaigns. the obama folks don't think they're trailing in a single battleground state and this is the day before the election. that's not to say they think they win every one of the nine battlegrounds if you include north carolina in that larger nine. that's how confident they are. that's how much they believe that they have done enough of what i would call the building the flood walls, if you will, with the early vote and the absentee. and what their turn in
